1829, Tasmania. John Batman, ruthless, single-minded; fourconvicts, the youngest still only a stripling; Gould, a downtrodden farmhand;two free black trackers; and powerful, educated Black Bill, brought up fromchildhood as a white man—this is the roving party, and their purpose ismassacre. With promises of freedom, land grants, and money, each is willing torisk his life for the prize. Passing over many miles of tortured country, theroving party searches for Aborigines, taking few prisoners and killing freely,Batman never abandoning the visceral intensity of his hunt. And all the while,Black Bill pursues his personal quarry, the much-feared warrior Manalargena.

A surprisingly beautiful evocation of horror and brutality, TheRoving Party is a meditation on the intricacies of human nature at itsmost raw.
